Welp. In a move that makes for a less than auspicious start to Cheer Everywhere in 2018, I decided not to cheer the 2018 Midnight Run. My New Year’s was spent indoors, in the comfort of my own home. Why? For the following reasons:
But – I still have the materials I was going to bring to the race.
First of all, anyone who knows me is familiar with (and likely irritated by) my love of puns. One of the main reason I wanted to cheer the Midnight Run was to hold up this sign:
Get it? I even underlined the word sign. Ha. Ha.
I’m not sure how well anyone would have been able to see this sign in the first place. I did purchase some glow sticks, but I probably should have developed a more sophisticated lighting system. As I was writing this, I did a Google search and discovered that poster lights are a thing – but alas.
Besides this sign, I had some neat accessories. Glasses and a party hat? Check.
A “jingle wand”, whatever that is? Check.
Glow bracelets? Check.
A New Year’s themed cowbell? Ringalingadingdong.
So were we to head out to Central Park – we would have totally been prepared! But eh, you can’t win (or cheer) them all.
I’m sure to end up in Central Park this month – there are at least three races happening there!
If I don’t sleep in this coming weekend, my next post will be a cheer report. Wish me luck!
